KSK Forestry Permit

Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited (the "Company" or "KLG") (TSX-V: KLG) (ISE: KLG) is pleased to advise that it has been granted a further extension of the Forestry Permit for its PT Kalimantan Surya Kencana ("KSK") sixth generation Contract of Work ("CoW").

Fieldwork and mobilization of equipment will commence immediately on all of the newly permitted prospect areas.

"The granting of the Forestry Permit extension is a major development.It enables us to now test drill all of our targeted areas within the CoW, and maximises the scope for a successful outcome to our substantial exploration program." Mr Faldi Ismail, CEO, KLG said.

Drilling Progress Update

We have received formal confirmation from the Ministry of Mines approving the KSK 2013 exploration and work program.

The deep drilling program has been completed at Focus One and drill pads are now being prepared at the gold-rich Mamuring Prospect. The second deep rig is drilling hole BKD04-01 at South Beruang Kanan.

Two shallow holes have been completed at Rinjen and a third hole is commencing. Shallow drilling to 300m is underway at Beruang Kanan on drill hole BK051-01.

KLG has purchased a new drill rig which will be mobilized to the KSK CoW in May. The drill pad for the new rig at Beruang Tengah Bukit Dea zone to test further high-grade gold surface anomalies to 600 m has been completed. Two 600 m drill holes are also planned at the Beruang Low Zone copper gold porphyry target and locations have been selected.

Surface mapping and sampling has recently been completed at the Volcano, Rinjen, Focus One, Mamuring, Ketambung, Low Zone, and Bukit Dea prospects. Surface mapping is underway at Beruang West Zone where high-grade copper samples were recovered in previous surveys.

Long line (4km) IP surveys are in progress over the Beruang Kanan, Low Zone and Beruang Tengah prospects. The permitting process for airborne gravity and high resolution magnetics geophysical surveys covering the entire CoW is ongoing and progress is being made.

An in-house resource estimate has commenced for Beruang Kanan, covering all delineation drilling to date up to hole to BK49-01.
